which is a State office, thoy claim, w.ll
prevent him from 'holding any other

sition of clerk he will also have to g.ve
bond, and that this will throw him out
of the other office.

"Hear Sir?I write to congratulate
you that the Christmas holidays are
bringing you a new lease on life, and
1 want to pay to you that but for the
persistent and faithful and valuable
services rendered you by our friend.
Mr. Hugh G. Miller, your life would
have been taken n week ago. You owe
Mr. Miller a debt of lasting gratitude,
and nothing but a faithful and loyal
service can repay him. In my limited
way I did something, but it is incom?
parable with Mr. Miller's efforts. I
am glad you were saved from the gal?
lows. Now make another effort by
making a good prisoner, faithfully dis
charging your duty, do everything
they assign you well, and possibly
you may fare better than living in
prison all your life. You may, by
faithful, consistent, honest life, win
your pardon. I hope you may. I am
very glad your life has been spared,
and glad to know thnt X* have been of

gratulating you. T am
